Ventura County Unincorporated Areas - Temporary Moratorium

In October 2014, the Ventura County Board of Supervisor’s adopted an urgency ordinance establishing a temporary moratorium on new wells in most areas of the county, including the unincorporated areas of the Ojai Basin. The ordinance became effective immediately.

The well moratorium will be lifted by the County when a groundwater sustainability plan for that basin has been filed with the state. The moratorium contains some exceptions, such as for existing well repair or replacement if there is no increase in well capacity.
